DataCore Software Receives Second Consecutive 5-Star Rating in CRN's 2011 Partner Programs Guide

DataCore Software, a leading provider of storage virtualization software, has been named to CRN’s 2011 Partner Programs Guide and has also been awarded a 5-Star Partner rating for the second straight year. CRN’s Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partner ratings serve as the definitive authority on vendors who have robust partner programs or products that service IT Channel solution providers. The annual 5-Star rating produced by Everything Channel recognizes the DataCore Partner Program as offering a program that provides the best possible partnering elements for channel success.   

With its SANsymphony™-V next-generation storage virtualization software solution, DataCore makes it easy to address the essential storage dimension to virtualization, enabling solution providers to accelerate sales cycles, increase margins and address the lucrative and growing storage market. DataCore provides a compelling software advantage delivering hardware independence and cost saving benefits to storage in much the same way as VMware, Microsoft and Citrix software do to servers and desktops. Virtualization solution providers can easily leverage their virtual server and virtual desktop practices with a software solution that makes it practical to address the demanding storage needs – cost, performance and availability – of their virtualization projects.

DataCore also has strong partnerships with the software industry’s leading developers of virtualization technologies. These partnerships offer customers full featured, best-of-breed virtualized IT solutions across the entire data center.

“The companies listed on the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today. Of those, only a few get our 5-Star award, based on their commitment to the channel, breadth of program offerings and services offered to their partners,” said Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director, for Everything Channel’s CRN. “Each of these organizations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive partner program, vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue.”

DataCore has undertaken a major effort to streamline its Partner Program over the last two years to make it easier for partners to reap the rewards and benefits of featuring DataCore’s storage virtualization solutions among their product offerings. The 5-Star recognition from Everything Channel validates this partner-centric approach. DataCore’s Solution Advisor Resource Center includes a wealth of sales training and positioning tools and materials to help resellers and solution advisors grow their virtualization business with DataCore's storage virtualization solutions.
